 >everybody knows that a strawberry in halves looks quite like a
 >vagina.

The interior of a string bean cut lengthwise looks more like a vagina.
I assume you meant "vulva."

Subject:        Strawberries

Strawberries are in season. Now let me get this right.  If I cut one in
two it looks like a vagina. Two vaginas, surely, but my question is, do
you cut it horizontal or vertical?  What's the bias?  And for the image,
ripeness is all I suppose. I guess you'll tell me to go slice a
strawberry and give it a look, hell, what's a box of strawberries cost?
  I just feel I need more instruction, but thanks anyway.

Then there's the head of a penis notion. That's really extreme. If
Shakespeare was going for phallic, it would have been a banana
handkerchief, maybe cucumber, but I mean why piddle around with
strawberries when the market is rich and rigid with possibilities.

A strawberry is more like an abused nose, token of a bad diet.  Some
great men have had strawberry noses. Industrialists, politicians, kings,
actors, although I have no idea why Othello wanted Desdemona to figure
this out.
